History 1-owner since new, 224,000 mi. (My favorite part about this car is the original paint!) This was handed down to me, and I'm partly documenting my journey on successful (and not so successful) repairs.

Done myself:
-Replace interior temp sensor (success)
-Fix interior dome light cover (success)
-Fix interior passenger seat adjustment panel (unsuccessful)
-Rewire side mirror wiring harness (success)
-Replace serpentine belt (success)
-Replace radiator hoses (the big 3) (success)
-Mitigate some rust under rear of car (sand and rust primer spray) (success)
-Replace trunk weather-stripping and remove rust on trunk lip (success)
-Remove swirl marks from paint (This was a big no-no. The part I tried it on has sun damage to the clear coat, 4 years later.)


Future repairs:
-Refinish the wheels
-Fan clutch
-Sunroof (stuck insulation and unglued headliner)
-Obtain underbelly covers (some are missing)
-Fuel pressure
-Rust on rear panel
-Rusty door bottoms
-Outside temperature sensor
-Oil leak
-Timing chain
-Power steering box
-Steering damper
-Front control arms
Exterior
None
